Following in the footsteps of Trent Reznor and Daft Punk, British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers are next in line to lend their golden touch to the silver screen.
Out this weekend, Hanna tells the story of a young girl raised in the wilds of Finland with a very unusual childhood. While most kids enjoy things like sports or video games, Hanna was trained to be the perfect assassin by her ex-CIA father. As she gets older, she’s sent into civilization for the first time on a top-secret mission where we see her show off her skills to the fullest.
The Chems are a great fit for the action-packed flick featuring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hollanderand Olivia Williams. With energy reminiscent of Run Lola Run, we follow Hanna across Europe as she eludes secret agents and faces revelations about her life during a turning point in her adolescence.
The Soundtrack is available now, and the film is due April 8.

What’s so good?
When changing gears for an upcoming album, it’s not unusual for an electronic artist to succumb to a particular metamorphis tending to be slightly more in tune with popular contemporaries across all genres. What? Wait a minute, is that a nice way of saying “selling out?”
Thankfully, one of the best things about the new album from the Dirty Vegas fellas is that Electric Love does the complete and utter opposite. The record picks up right where things left off seven years ago with their last full-length, One. No easy task!
They’re not having an identity crisis. They’re not trying to go the way of electro, rave, rock, or heaven forbid, anything “wave.” Dirty Vegas has written a brilliant album that’s current, relevant to the dance music community, and catchy as hell.
The album goes in different directions but remains contant to their dance music roots. We hear big, club-ready dance tunes (“Little White Doves,” “Electric Love”) and more downtempo tracks tinged with hints of disco (“Emma”).
Due April 26th, Electric Love is a well-produced album that’s definitely worth a listen.
